The number is actually related to the partitioning allowed on the device.


* Devices are only checked for partition tables if their minor number
* is a multiple of the number corresponding to their type below
* i.e. this gives the granularity of whole-device minor numbers.
* Use 1 if the device is not partitionable.

device-mapper devices don't get partitioned by the kernel
so use 1 instead of 254.



Ah, thank you for pointing this out.
Will update the FAQ accordingly.
